The spirit of Brazil meets luxury and extravagance at Pampas in the heart of downtown Palo Alto. Here, the authenticity of the Brazilian churrasco comes to a modern dining emporium where impromptu gatherings, romantic rendezvous? and large corporate events feel at home. On the plate, smoke meets spice, rusticity finds Moresophistication, tradition is re-imagined. Simply prepared meats are spit roasted to juicy perfection and sliced tableside without limit. Sample the array alongside one of our mixologist?s freshly muddled seasonal cocktails or a choice vintage selected by our sommelier. Take in the side bar, brimming with seasonal vegetables, fresh salads and artisan cheese; and watch our servers round the room with simply prepared meats, spit roasted to juicy perfection and sliced tableside without limit. At Pampas, we invite you to sit back, indulge and watch. Every meal is a show.

  • Rating: 5.0 out of 5"Jul 24, 2014 · by Anida H. from YelpFood and service amazing. Get the all you can eat. So worth it. The filet mignon is to DIE FOR and the unlimited salad bar is full of all kinds of things from vegetables to smoked salmon and even mashed potatoes. The waiters come by every 15 minutes or so with various types of steak and meat and everything tastes fresh off the grill. Can't wait to go back again! Full review
  • Rating: 5.0 out of 5"Jul 23, 2014 · by Diane W. from YelpPampas is about as perfect as it gets. We have been here a number of times and it always feels like a special event. Come very hungry and enjoy a leisurely and very filling meal.I love the salad and veggie bar and probably should try to curb that. Here, it's all about the meat. The meat (beef) and the fried bananas … Full review
  • Rating: 4.0 out of 5"Jul 22, 2014 · by Connie N. from YelpMy brother was in town and treated the family to dinner and chose this place...probably because my parents love buffets/all-you-can-eat (AYCE)...and never go out to eat etc. Suffice to say, they bowed down to the meat gods of Pampas. He made reservations because usually this place is packed? There is a … Full review
